The physico-chemical properties of the underground and surface water samples collected from different locations of Rajshahi and Dinajpur district of Bangladesh were determined. The study was conducted for hand tube-wells (95-125 ft. depth) and surface (mainly ponds) water. For the comparative study of the qualities and quantities of ground and surface water of a particular location, underground water samples were collected around the surface water. Physical properties were involved with measurements of pH, conductivity, total solids, dissolved solids, suspended solids and total hardness. The chemical properties were associated with the determination of anions Cl-, SO2–4 , PO3–4 and HCO–3 and cations Na+, K+, Ca2+ and Mg2+. The concentration of trace element such as arsenic was also determined in some water samples.
